Jhonattan Vegas successfully defends RBC Canadian Open title
Jhonattan Vegas took down Charley Hoffman in a playoff to repeat as champion.

Charley Hoffman was in contention for his fifth career PGA Tour title this weekend when he found a tricky, fried egg lie in a greenside bunker on the par-3 12th hole at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

In a situation where his ball would be well below his feet, Hoffman dug his heels into the bunker and, to his delight, found a concrete lining. Since the concrete allegedly interfered with his stance, Hoffman was allowed to take relief from the spot and take a drop, creating a much better stance, and lie, for his next shot.

Even though he splashed his ball and was unable to reach the green, Hoffman, who lost in a playoff to Jhonattan Vegas, avoided the terrible lie by using the rules to his advantage. His playing partner, Kevin Chappell, weighed in with a little NSFW commentary of his own. Check it out in the video below.
